There is no magical formula for losing weight. Fad diets and quick fix solutions will not work. Despite the quackery pervasive on the internet, there has never been in the history of weight loss "medicine," a 100% proven product for losing weight and keeping it off. Shammers only capitalize on peoples' concern over their image as a means to make money, with no proven results or FDA backing. The dangers of crash dieting are ingrained in us, yet in our desperate attempt to lose weight fast, we ignore all risks, putting ourselves in harm. My advice to you is; save your money and pass the quacks by, because much of what you need to know about safe weight management is common sense, though admittedly, common sense seems to be at a premium these days.Safe and slow: There is nothing wrong with losing weight quickly, as long as you do it safely. You may not drop 15-20 pounds a week, like some of "the Biggest Loser" contestants, unless you have trainers like Jillian or Bob, are severely obese, … [Read more...] about Quick Weight Loss Tips – How to Lose Weight Safely and Sustainably
I need to lose weight where do i start
HUFFPOST PERSONAL 07/06/2018 05:46 am ET Lesley KinzelGuest Writer I’ve had exactly one good doctor in my life. I’ve had numerous unhelpful ones. I am reluctant to generalize and say that they were simply bad in a holistic sense, that their inability to administer thoughtful and sensitive medical services was universal. They may have been spectacular doctors for other patients. They were not for me. There is a reason for this: I am fat. I am not fat in any kind of gentle or subtle way; I am aggressively fat. I am the type of fat that is unignorable. I am sizable the instant I walk into a room. Especially if that room is a waiting area in a new doctor’s office, where I found myself this week. I moved last fall, from one New England state to another, and although the move was only an hour away, I had to change my health insurance. I managed to cajole prescription refills from my old doctor for a few months, but at a certain point I had to face the … [Read more...] about I Am Fat. I Still Deserve Good Medical Care.

Have you noticed that stress and anxiety make it harder for you to think clearly? And that you tend to eat more when you're stressed or thinking about unhappy experiences? Stress and anxiety can play a big role in weight control problems, and can make it almost impossible to stay on your diet.Do you have a friend who fully intends to lose weight but just hasn't yet got around to it? It's possible that chronic stress allows her un-conscious mind to make many of her eating decisions for her, and that can be the one thing that destroys her opportunity to lose weight.She's literally pulled in two different directions. She wants to eat better, but she doesn't do it. She wants to lose 20 or 30 pounds, but she doesn't do it.

So what's the difference? Weight loss? Fat Loss? Isn't it all the same? The answer is an emphatic 'NO!' The problem is the majority of people just want to lose weight, and think by losing weight that they are losing fat at the same time. Again, this is what the majority of people think. And it is drilled into their heads over and over again by media, friends, and co-workers saying a person is over-weight. It's time to change the thinking, you're not over-weight, you're simply over-fat.So on to weight loss. When you lose weight, the problem is you don't know if it is fat, muscle, or water.
